Sixteen-year-old Winnie Schulde has always seen splits--the moment when two possible outcomes diverge, one in her universe and one in another.

    Such a great book! Why isn’t it getting more attention? This is a book where I did not like the MC at all and still enjoyed the story. RTC

    I loved this book and was quickly transported into the characters lives. It was such a fast great book I can't wait to more by this author. I mean her debut knocked it out of the park for me so I'm excited to read more. Winnie is such a great character and I really liked her instantly. I wanted her to find her happiness and have a nice life. Her father was obsessed and using her and she needed to get away from his clutches. Scott oh Scott was the sweet boy who was always there for Winnie and look I loved this book and was quickly transported into the characters lives.

Then when she is faced with the terrible decision on who to save, I was practically biting my nails for Winnie. If you are looking for a great book that has time travel than When You and I Collide is made for you! I'm just so excited to see this one the shelves and will be buying a copy to have on my shelves becuase A; It will be a reread book for sure and B: Can we talk about the beautiful cover! :)

    A young adult novel that blends science and science fiction with historical drama and the heroine’s discovery of who she is and who she can be. The central conceit - that Winnie can see alternate realities/splits from what happens in her world - sets up the novel’s genius premise when Winnie ends up in one of those splits and encounters another version of herself. Norris sets this crackerjack premise in the midst of World War II and thus the experiments that undergird the plot are linked with na A young adult novel that blends science and science fiction with historical drama and the heroine’s discovery of who she is and who she can be.

Norris sets this crackerjack premise in the midst of World War II and thus the experiments that undergird the plot are linked with national security and Winnie’s German heritage adds an extra layer of danger. I hope there are more books to come by Kate Norris!

    Although this book was 400 pages, I just couldn't get into it. It took me weeks. The story was meh and the characters felt bland. I was never really hooked. There's not much to say. There was nothing exceptionally good or bad about this book. Although a few og the characters got on my nerves near the end. Most of it was science talk. And although the cover makes it look like a romance, it wasnt. I did really like how this book focused on the discrimination German immigrants faced during WW2.

Not a subject I have read about before.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Sarah Naughton is one of my favorite narrators, and she did a fantastic job on this book! The story though, I don’t know. It was good, but it was really missing something. There was so much worry and drama and emotions leading up to…not much of anything. I mean, it was really all for nothing, and we don’t know what happens with Beta. Good idea for the story, but I feel like there were ways to make it better.
